Basic configuration

All configurations about this theme.

Header Covers

To define custom header cover, set the property HEADER_COVER in pelicanconf.py:

HEADER_COVER = 'static/my_image.png'

Header Color

To define a simple header background color, set the property HEADER_COLOR in pelicanconf.py:

HEADER_COLOR = 'black'

you can use any valid css color.

Social URLs

Github, Twitter and Facebook URLs set these properties:

SOCIAL = (('twitter', 'https://twitter.com/myprofile'),
          ('github', 'https://github.com/myprofile'),
          ('facebook','https://facebook.com/myprofile'),
          ('flickr','https://www.flickr.com/myprofile/'),
          ('envelope','mailto:my@mail.address'))

If you have new links add them to SOCIAL. The Name has to be the name of the corresponding FontAwesome icon. If SHOW_SOCIAL_ON_INDEX_PAGE_HEADER is set to True social icons will be shown under site sub-title on the index page.

External feed URL

You can specify an external feed URL (e.g. FeedBurner) in SOCIAL using the rss or rss-square icons. The icon will be shown in the footer with the rest of your SOCIAL accounts. A <link> tag for the external feed will be placed in <head> instead of the default Pelican feeds.

Code highlights

This theme contains this color schemes:

  • Tomorrow - tomorrow.css;
  • Tomorrow Night - tomorrow_night.css;
  • Monokai - monokai.css;
  • Github - github.css;
  • Github Jekyll (Gray BG Jekyll way) - github_jekyll.css;
  • Darkly (Default) - darkly.css;

To customize, define COLOR_SCHEME_CSS in pelicanconf.py with css filename. Example:

COLOR_SCHEME_CSS = 'monokai.css'

User defined CSS

Define CSS_OVERRIDE in pelicanconf.py to insert a user defined CSS file after theme CSS. Example:

CSS_OVERRIDE = 'myblog.css'

Disable theme JavaScript

Set DISABLE_CUSTOM_THEME_JAVASCRIPT to True if you want to disable js/clean-blog.min.js in case it affects forms and input fields.

User defined footer

Define FOOTER_INCLUDE in pelicanconf.py to insert a custom footer text instead the default "Powered by Pelican". The value is a template path. You also need to define the EXTRA_TEMPLATES_PATHS setting. If your custom footer template is stored under the content PATH then Pelican will try to render it as regular HTML page and will most likely fail. To prevent Pelican from trying to render your custom footer add it to IGNORE_FILES. Example:

FOOTER_INCLUDE = 'myfooter.html'
IGNORE_FILES = [FOOTER_INCLUDE]
EXTRA_TEMPLATES_PATHS = [os.path.dirname(__file__)]

WARNING: avoid using names which duplicate existing templates from the theme directory, for example footer.html. Due to how Pelican searches the template directories it will first find the files in the theme directory and you will not see the desired results.

Analytics

Accept many analytics:

  • Google Analytics: GOOGLE_ANALYTICS;
  • Gauges: GAUGES
  • Piwik: PIWIK_URL and PIWIK_SITE_ID.

Other configuration

  • If ADDTHIS_PUBID is defined sharing buttons from AddThis will appear at the bottom of the article;
  • GOOGLE_SITE_VERIFICATION - Google site verification token;
  • Set SHOW_FULL_ARTICLE to True to show full article content on index.html instead of summary;
  • Set SHOW_SITESUBTITLE_IN_HTML to True to make use of the SITESUBTITLE variable inside the <title> HTML tag;
  • Set FACEBOOK_ADMINS to a list of Facebook account IDs which are associated with this blog. For example ['12345']. For more info see https://developers.facebook.com/docs/platforminsights/domains

Articles

  • To customize header cover to articles, insert the metadata header_cover.
  • To customize OpenGraph images, insert the metadata og_image, otherwise header_cover, HEADER_COVER or a default image is used.
  • To customize Twitter card images, insert the metadata twitter_image, otherwise header_cover, HEADER_COVER or a default image is used. Twitter cards are automatically generated if the twitter icon is configured in SOCIAL!

All image paths are relative from the site root directory. You can also use absolute URLs for og_image and twitter_image.
